Domain Chandon by Foolscap Studio

Located 100 meters above sea level, Domaine Chandon Australia — home to the globally acclaimed sparkling wine Chandon — not only offers an unrivalled view of the Yarra Valley and its countless vineyards, but it now offers one of the most breath-taking interiors in the region thanks to Foolscap Studio.

In 2017, the Melbourne-based interior design firm were briefed in to overhaul the space and create a new brand-immersion across the bar, dining, tasting and retail spaces.

Inspired by the uplifting ritual of spontaneously popping the cork and the company’s rich heritage, Foolscap Studio designed the space with the “visitor experience which will traverse loyalists and locals, diehard food and wine thrill-seekers, ‘gramming millennials and new discoverers alike” in mind.

The space, which also pays homage to Chandon’s French heritage, features banquettes made from Pelle Leather’s Nevada leather, brass light fittings, spotted gum timber flooring and textiles printed by indigenous artists.
